Set in 1952, as Britain prepares for the coronation, The Scapegoat tells the provocative story of two very different men who have one thing in common--a face. John Standing meets his doppelgänger Johnny Spence and, after a drunken night, is maneuvered into swapping lives with him. Standing is suddenly responsible for a beautiful young wife, two mistresses, a drug abusing mother, a precocious daughter, a crumbling stately home and a bankrupt business. Despite his efforts to escape, John finds himself irresistibly drawn into Johnny's life--with fatal consequences.
The Scapegoat is a morally complex, darkly comic and suspenseful movie, adapted from the novel by Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca, Don't Look Now) and featuring compelling performances from the film's ensemble cast.
